Metro’s universal fare payment system is the Transit Access Pass (TAP). TAP is a program that allows users to pay for transit rides on approximately 24 transit agencies that use the TAP program. TAP is a card that can be loaded electronically with regional and local transit passes and store value (cash amount) or transfers. The program includes TAP fareboxes or validators on board transit vehicles and at rail stations. Future plans for the TAP program include: a Bluetooth pilot project for ADA gates; a TAP mobile app; regional ticket vending machines; payment compliance; and partnerships with bikeshare, parking, Transportation Network Companies like Uber and Lyft, EV carshare programs, mobility hubs, and more.
